Stayed at this lovely 'cottage' for a week while visiting Australia to see one son living in Melbourne with his partner and daughter and another son living in Brisbane. Absolutely beautiful … More

"The Most Beautiful Home in Which We Have Ever Stayed"
This is by far the most beautiful home in which we have ever stayed. Sharyn has thought of everything, even Christmas decorations for our December visit. We were greeted with an amazing array of spe… More
Thank you for that amazing review, it was our pleasure! I will clarify however that the TripAdvisor advertisement is correct and does reflect the current accommodation available at Crescentfield. The stairwell and upstairs rooms of the cottage have indeed been closed until further notice however there are still 2 bedrooms downstairs and a rollaway or cot available so the cottage will sleep up to 5. There is no change to all other facilities or our level of service and we are certainly still open for business.

Wow! Thank you so much for posting this wonderful review. I am not sure my children would always agree with you! It is a pleasure to provide quality accommodation for extended families including grandparents. We have travelled extensively with our children also and it is much easier with some of the comforts of home! We love Crescentfield and its garden and it is so heartwarming to find kindred spirits from all over the world love it too. Sharyn.

Thank you for such a lovely review and for taking such great care of the cottage during your stay. We are delighted that you enjoyed your time there. The garden is exquisite in late spring and early summer and is my personal favorite time of year here at Crescentfield. Please do indeed return one day to continue your exploration of Hobart and surrounds and to enjoy the serenity of the cottage and its garden.

My wife and I owned this old house from 1959 until 1973. It was with great excitement that we went with our daughter, and son in law, to revisit the past. We were delighted to see the care and attenti… More
It was a delight to meet you all and we feel very honored that you found the house to your liking. Thank you for filling in some of the gaps in the history of the house and for the wonderful photos. It was and still is a lovely family home.

"A wonderful place to have a relaxing break."
This beautiful cottage is the perfect place to stay while in Hobart. We stayed in the winter and were never cold in the house - the under floor heating in the kitchen and bathroom is especially nice. There were lots of 'welcome goodies' to eat and drink and the amazing shop across the road provided us with everything else that we needed. The cottage is very comfortable and the garden is beautiful, even in the winter. We plan to return and thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone planning a holiday in this part of Tasmania.
